Nice blog, Karin!

I've started a blog of sorts on Facebook. The downside is that it's only viewable by other Facebook users, but the upside is that it's a more interactive conversation than a somewhat one-way blog. Most of the artists I know (and lots of my family members, friends, and clients) are already on Facebook so it's a huge community.

Got a link for that Michelle? I'm on facebook too but don't really use it much (if at all)....but gosh, maybe I should take a second look.

Perhaps because I have an internet connection via Satellite I've found that facebook takes a long time to load.

I do miss the opportunity for interaction and "talkin' technical" with other artists - but in the past a tiny faction got out of hand, and gosh, life is just too short for that nonsense.

The replies on my art blog are pretty much limited to comments that I approve. And considering the fact that I did mention politics (you can do that on your own blog) I got some replies that I did NOT approve for publication.

I don't think you can get to anyone's Facebook page via a link. You have to go to www.Facebook.com, sign up, and then type in the person's name. Facebook will ask if you want to send them a Friend request, and if they say yes, you can see their profile and post notes on their wall, comment on their photos, etc.

I've found it very helpful for staying in touch with a lot of artists that I don't get to see very often -- and for "meeting" lots of new ones, too. It's more informal than sending a direct email to someone. Once you get a bunch of Facebook Friends it feels like being at a very large, rather slow moving (and silent!) party. There are lot of people there, some you know and some you don't know, but you usually have a friend or two in common.

You can set very detailed privacy settings so you don't have to share everything you're doing with all your Friends. And no one can see what you're posting if you haven't agreed to "Friend" them.
